SuperFeast | Podcast | Schizandra: The Magical Berry with Mason and Tahnee (EP#57)

 Mason Taylor and Tahnee McCrossin, our lord and lady of SuperFeast, are back at it on the pod today, waxing lyrical on the juicy wonders of schizandra (schisandra) berry. Our dynamic duo explore schizandra's adaptogenic qualities, the herbal lore surrounding its historical use, its potency as a Liver and sexual tonic and so much more! Tune in for the full download.

"If you want to be initiating into tonic herbalism long term we get out of, "I've got a symptom, I take tonic herb to solve it," but rather we're trying to bring a smooth flow of Qi through all of our organs” - Mason Taylor

 

 Tahnee and Mason discuss:

  • Schizandra / schisandra as the five flavor fruit.
  • Schizandra's actions on the Liver, Lung and Kidney channels.
  • How harmonizing your Liver Qi can aid sleep.
  • The adaptogenic qualities of Schizandra.
  • Schizandra as a potent sexual tonic for both men and women.
  • Expressing reverence for the tonic herbs you are consuming and appreciating the lineage you get to be apart of by doing so.
  • Schizandra; breast feeding and pregnancy.
  • Schizandra and menopause.
